As I said, the problem only occurs in terminals started from the xwin-xdg-menu.
That isn't what you did. Here are the reproduction instructions again:
1. Start the X server using the XWin Server shortcut in the Start Menu (look
2. Locate the xwin-xdg-menu tray icon. It looks like a black C with a green X
inside. If you hover over it, you'll see "X applications menu on :0". Click on
that icon, hover over System Tools, and select one of the terminals offered.
3. Try your 'ls' command or some variation of it in that terminal.
On my system I see the broken pipe error from grep half of the time or more if
use your original test 'ls -lL <(grep bash .bashrc)'. If I use the simpler 'ls
<(grep bash .bashrc)', I see the error about 98% of the time. And if I use the
even simpler 'echo <(grep bash .bashrc)', I see the error 100% of the time.
